Lyrics

Wildflower

Written By: Michael Cable

Somewhere in between Tennessee and nowhere
That’s when she first appeared to me
Sun dancing laughing playing on her skin
And a smile that could make your day

Chorus:
And she’s a wildflower
A tiger lily growing free
And she’s a wildfire
With the color of the sun burning free

V2
She doesn’t like small talk it’s just a waste of her time
But if she likes you she’ll let you know
But don’t try to question her she’s had too much of that
If questions are what you need

Chorus

Bridge:
Angel on fire with broken wings
Darkness surrounds you and your afterglow remains
But don’t try to tame her it’s just not part of her nature

Too Little, Too Late, Tonight

Written By: Crystal Stewart/Michael Cable

V.1
It’s been sometime since last we kissed
Ain’t it funny how the simple things you don’t think you’ll miss
Now I’m sitting here alone staring at the telephone
Wondering if I’ll ever love again

Chorus:
If you would’ve said “I’m sorry”
We would have been okay
If our love had been secure
We’d still be together today
Now you say if I’ll come back
You’ll love me with all your might
It’s too little, too late, tonight

V.2
The hours pass the days roll by
Still every time I think of you I hang my head to cry
Now you’re standing there holding my heart in your hands
Begging me for just one last try

Chorus

Bridge:
And I look at you
And you see right through me
Cause you think you’ll have my heart
Indefinitely
But I must be strong
No it won’t take long
Til I tell you again

Chorus
